Solution To Have Gaim With Msn

resolution msn/gaim ( post #8)

you must have nss and nspr tar.gz, decompress and put them in /usr/local

them you decompress gaim 0.71, enter in this directory and write this command: ./configure --with-nss-includes=/usr/local/nss --with-nss-libs=/usr/local/nss --with-nspr-includes=//usr/local/nspr --with-nspr-libs=/usr/local/nspr

them the normal make and make install

note that you have permissions of root

the binary stays in usr/local/bin
